マハルシ 画像

Mr. Duncan Greenlees, Madanapalli, wrote as follows:- One has at times had vivid ashes of a consciousness whose centre is outside the normal self and which seems to be inclusive. Without concerning the mind with philosophical concepts, how would Bhagavan advise us to work towards getting, retaining and extending those ashes? Does abhyasa in such experiences involve retirement?

Sri Bhagavan answered: ‘Outside’ – For whom is inside or outside? They can be only so long as there are the subject and object. For whom are these two again? They both will resolve into the subject only. See who is in the subject. The investigation leads you to pure consciousness beyond the subject.

信奉者:Madanapalli在住のDuncan Greenlees氏が次のような手紙を書いた。「人は時に強烈な意識の灰塵を持つことがあります。その意識の中心は通常の自我の外側にあり、すべてを含んでいるようにも思われます。哲学的概念を持った心に関わることなく、どのようにしてその灰塵を得、保持し、拡大するよう努力したらよいのでしょうか?そのような経験をした場合、修行を止め、隠遁することになるのでしょうか?」
